Banks SpeedBrake is a revolutionary, patented all-electronic braking system with downhill speed regulating capability, user-adjustable setpoint speeds (25-75 mph) & built-in safety. It takes exhaust braking to a whole new level by combining intelligent manipulation of the variable geometry turbo's turbine vanes with specific control of gear selection and torque converter clutch application when engine braking is desired. SpeedBrake has various operating modes and settings to optimize braking function for individual preferences and conditions.

SpeedBrake requires use of Banks Power iQ
FEATURES & BENEFITS
  • In testing, dramatically outperformed all competitive products in basic braking function (and nobody but Banks has anything like a Speed Control Mode!)
  • Easy, clean install; all-electronic design requires only a few simple underhood connections; no modifications to the exhaust system are needed
  • System Status Indicator with on-screen alerts (excessive coolant or trans temps, for example)
  • OBDII scan tool capability: reads/interprets/clears codes
  • Easy touch-screen control - Displays vehicle speed, current braking effort (relating to vane position), trans temp, engine coolant temp and much more
  • Operating modes -
    ON: Maximum braking; High, Med and Low strength settings
    SPEED CONTROL: Maintains pre-selected target speed
  • More effective braking than is possible with a simple valve assembly
  • Free shipping special with no handling fees or extra charges when you buy at Thoroughbred Diesel
Benefits of the all-electronic design.

Installation is fast, clean and easy. No cutting. No welding. No wire tapping. No wire splicing. Unlike conventional exhaust brakes, SpeedBrake is plug-and-play! It interacts with the vehicle in a way that no conventional exhaust brake ever has. It uses Banks PowerPDA® to interface with the vehicle's ECU, intelligently controlling the variable geometry turbo vanes, torque converter clutch application and transmission gear selection to optimize braking control

Flexible braking control.

"ON" MODE: select the level of braking aggressiveness you want: High, Medium, Low. "SPEED CONTROL" MODE: select and maintain a specified downhill speed (25-75 mph). PowerPDA® provides 2-way communication and displays vehicle parameters, including vehicle speed, current braking effort relating to vane position, trans temp and engine coolant temp. It also has a system status indicator with on-screen alerts, and OBDII scan tool capability. Amazing!

DOWNHILL CRUISE CONTROL
Imagine setting your "comfort zone" and cutting downhill speed by nearly 80% without even touching the brake pedal, keeping your brakes cool and ready for emergencies should they arise. The SpeedBrake increases the stopping power of your truck and extends the service life of your brakes, and does so while maintaining your sanity.

AREN'T EXHAUST BRAKES SUPPOSE TO SLOW YOU DOWN?
That's what we thought too, but the other products on the market provide inadequate braking power and actually allow your speed to increase as you plummet faster and faster downhill. With the competition's poor performing product, you are forced to use your truck's brakes and manually shift your transmission in an effort to gain lost confidence.

NOT YOUR FATHER'S BRAKE.
The SpeedBrake is an all-electronic mastermind of braking technology. Plug-in connection makes for a clean, simple installation without cutting or tapping into vital wire harnesses. There's no crawling under the truck to cut up your exhaust system and no mechanical "adjustments" necessary to insure its function. SpeedBrake uses the trucks own components to give you the safety you need when towing, so there's no added mechanical parts to second guess.

LIKE NO OTHER!
With the SpeedBrake there's no competition and no compromise. This smart device becomes an active component of your vehicle, constantly monitoring and adjusting systems to achieve the speed setting you command. With its patented technology the SpeedBrake controls your transmission's shifting, locks and unlocks the torque converter and infinitely varies the V.G. turbo's vanes to hold your set speed and maximize stopping performance to ensure that you have the safety and confidence for the long haul. Watch it all happen as the Banks iQ keeps you informed by displaying important parameters and on-screen alerts you set. And... it's also an OBD-II scan tool. - Now That's Smart!
